Leigh's Nurseries Newcastle

Here at Leigh’s curiosity is key!


Happy Monday everyone – we hope you all had a brilliant weekend with your little ones!

An eagerness to explore is something that we really try to push and encourage in each of our nurseries. As every child grows, so does their curiosity which excites us so much as it showcases that they’re keen to discover new things and figure them out independently.

On a daily basis the children thrive with the help of our practical life resources. The purpose and overall aim of practical life is to really help the children gain control when it comes to the co-ordination of their own movements. Activities like the one showcased in the photographs from our Heddon on the Wall nursery result in them really adapting to the society that they’ll be living in when they grow up, whilst also sparking independence within them which we all know is so incredibly key for development into adulthood.

The world that we live in is an incredible but also at times very challenging place to be. With the help of our highly trained staff, each child is supported and their innate curiosity is pushed to its full potential, giving them the confidence to develop their own theories and ideas! We know that it’s nerve racking and difficult to imagine the day when they’ll eventually fly the nest and start living their lives on their own terms, but we promise that every day spent with us is instilling them with the right behaviours and attitudes that they’ll carry with them always.

See you soon,
